TMI Alert: The following post may contain more information than
you ever wanted to know. Please proceed with caution...
As you know, radiation is a form of controlled burning. The
tissues that are radiated end up very irritated and inflamed. I'll let you put two and two together and figure out which of my tissues are irritated and inflamed. Another side effect of radiation is itchy skin. I have a serious case of it! Sometimes it is so bad that it wakes me up in the night and I think I am going to die! LOL! The doctor gave
me some cream to use and it helps a little, but not much.
So, please pray for relief from these things: itching, pain and inflammation. I have two more weeks of chemo and radiation and I have been told that the side effects could last for up to four weeks after I finish treatments.
I was reading my Bible before I left for church this morning and I
read this verse in Isaiah 52:12, "But you will not leave in haste
or go in flight; for the Lord will go before you, the God of Israel
will be your rear guard." I laughed out loud! God is my "rear
guard"! I am praying that he literally will be, and I hope you
will pray the same! God definitely has a sense of humor!
I love you guys! I'm sorry if this post was too graphic, but I
thought you guys could handle it! : )
Thanks for praying!
